Great service up until our waiter forgot to put in our last order and we sat there waiting for close to a half hour before he realized it. Food was good, not the best sushi I’ve ever eaten, but fresh. Watch out for the specials..$40 for 2 slivers of tuna with truffle oil and truffle powder?? I could have done that a home☹️

First of all, the food is delicious. I had the Tuna Carpaccio to start. The tuna melted in my mouth. Really enjoyed it. Then I ordered various tuna rolls each better than the last. The spicy tuna with avocado was my favorite. The sashimi was delicious. Tuna, Salmon, eel.

They brought a chocolate molten lava cake for dessert with warm white and dark chocolate in the center. Truly amazing. My only complaint was the speed of service. Food was brought out timely enough but it was difficult to get the waiter’s attention to order more sake, order dessert, get the check, etc.

Katsuyuck!

Used to be one of our favorites. Has gone way downhill. Tuna was not fresh, nor was the lobster robata. Waygu was literally raw and had to be sent back. There were maybe 20 people there on a Tuesday night and there was zero atmosphere. Entire experience was such a letdown. Definitely no longer on our list of favorites in Miami.

Overall a decent Japanese restaurant. A stylish place playing upbeat music which creates a vibrant feel. The food is very good perhaps not blown away by it and for me Nobu and Zuma in London are better. However, a great Japanese fix....

We were shocked that the service was so poor. It took over an hour to receive 2 appetizers. When we still had not received the next dish after an hr, they realized they had not put in the order. When they finally brought the dish, we inquired as to why it took so long. It was close to 10pm and not busy. The manager was condescending & tried to tell us the chef was not satisfied with sending out a subpar dish. However the dish they did send out was completely undercooked. We could not believe it. We have had this dish before & knew it was not cooked properly. We told the waitstaff and she actually agreed that it was under cooked. We saw her talk to the manager but he didn’t want to come over and deal with it. He made the wait staff come over and take the dish. They were not concerned nor did it matter that we had spent almost 2 hrs there & didn’t even get to eat dinner. Maybe it was an off night for the kitchen but the treatment we received from the manager was horrendous! I’m all about trying to be understanding but Katsuya did not care nor have any intention of apologizing for ruining our dinner.

For Miami spice and it didn't disappoint . The menu allowed us three courses all of which were solid . It's a bit small and was not crowded . I believe there was an upstairs. Cool chairs and decor. I'd go back. The wagu beef dumplings were a favorite !

This is a scam. You get lured into the place thinking you get an authentic Japanese meal, given the name. Turns outKatsuya just have his name. The sushi rolls were wired, something I could get at the local Whole Foods. Which I wouldn’t mind if there was t the price! Outrageous for what you get. There are many more places in Miami Beach that have fantastic food. Stay away from this place.

Service was decent but restaurant was empty (20% utilisation rate)
Food was really poor:
Tempura batter was so heavy.
Sushi rolls were falling apart.
Grilled vegetable were covered in sweet sauce. And not cooked properly.
Salmon was served with fried salad!?
And it was quite pricey.
Would not recommend.

I went with my mother and wife visiting from Europe. There was a rude, belligerent man screaming the whole time. Even though the waiters were fully aware of this man screaming, cursing, misbehaving because of the fact that he’s drunk, the manager did nothing about it.

When I finally called the manager and told him, he told me that he did not even realize. It’s funny because all the waiters already knew. This belligerent man then continue to threaten me if he was leaving the restaurant screaming at me to meet him outside for a fight. It’s unbelievable that they allow this kind of people into a fancy restaurant such as this one. The manager was completely unaware and incapable. The manager should’ve removed this gentleman hours before I had to complain. This was a terrible experience for me because I was out with my wife and my mother that was visiting. I will not go back to this restaurant again. It’s a shame!
